obama's name is attached to it, and it doesn't have the -- the white house nudges, so to speak. but because this comes strictly from the president, is that why people are rekoilg from it? >> without a doubt. the process, very protective of the process, legislative process. and i think the republicans want to make sure that at the end of the day, that it was something that they were actively involved. they crafted the piece of legislation. and they don't want to be seen this is something the president forced upon them. there is a lot of republicans that i've talked to that are willing to do something that they don't want to come up with a plan and say this is president obama's plan. and they supported it. it has to come, originate from -- both from the senate and house. and that's why it's so protected. they're very protective of the process. and i can understand them. i'm actually one of those democrats that, you know -- i want to thank the president for being a leader on immigration reform. but this is something that he can back up, let the process work, let us work something
obama. i think he is out campaigning all the time across the country and across the globe. we have real problems here. we really need to solve them. i think the reason republicans have had to do what we have had to do is because we have a lack of leadership. there is nobody bringing republicans and democrats together. the president should as leader of the nation. he is not in the white house. he is not in the white house. host: who do you see as republican leaders? caller: i think they are representing my ideas, my belief system, and my conservatism. i think they are doing the right thing. host: any leaders in particular? we saw senator rubio give the gop response. caller: i think mark rubio, john mccain, ted cruz, a lot of these congressmen who have been in government for a while, and some of the new ones are doing the job that they were sent there to do. they are representing the constituency from where they are from. the democrats do the same. i know we have differences on both sides of the aisle, but i believe that being able to -- being able to work together and coming together as
